crafts:: recycled hoodie towel

im meant to do some spring cleaning today. our little apartment, despite not having lived in here for too long, is completely cluttered!! with a million good things we love which is heartbreaking...

one of the areas to focus on is the dreaded linen closet. home to linen of all colours, mismatched towels, and musashi's ever-growing collection of pet clothes... a complete eyesore!! im making good progress but in my "throw" pile, i noticed this towel::

i've had it for 10 years!! it used to be pink and now its all and faded. 
but i have a problem throwing out fabric. 
i keep and keep hoping that someday i can make cool things from them... 

then i had an ah-hah! moment...

sorry... recycled towels are very flopsie and unsexy to take pictures of...
but i made a hoodie towel! :) 

for this furry one who hates soapy baths!
and hates the hair dryer so much his dad has to fan him manually to dry him up...
i've never seen a more spoilt puppy!!

actually.. its kinda soft and comfy. 
he drifted off in the middle of the shoot. 
i guess it is somewhat like a baby swaddle right!?

"thanks ma! now you can put this towel back into the linen closet!" :)


p.s. i link my crafts to these parties.
